Samsung expanded its 0.8-micrometre pixel image sensor that comes with 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 and a 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 image sensors for smartphones that could be used in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The new camera sensor will be entering mass production in the second half of 2019 and can be seen on new flagship smartphones.
The image sensor comes with higher resolution in comparison to other sensors that are there in the market right now, which is why Samsung has described it as the “industry’s highest resolution” sensor for smartphones.
Both sensors come with Samsung’s proprietary Isocell Plus technology and Tetracell technology that lets the sensor produce better low-light images by combining four pixels into one.
The 64MP Bright GW1 sensor will have real-time HDR of almost 100-decibels that would produce rich hues, along with dual conversion gain to cut down on noise and increase colour accuracy. The sensor is also said to support high-performance phase detection auto-focus technology and full-HD recording at 480 frames-per-second (FPS) that aids in smooth cinematic slow-motion videos.
With 48MP camera getting common, Samsung hopes on gaining the smartphone camera market with its 64 Megapixel camera. According to the company, Samsung will be entering mass production in the second half of the year, which hints to the Galaxy Note 10.
